In the world of fiction, anything is possible. Yet there are some movie/show plots and storylines that include creative and seemingly foreshadowing details that later end up becoming startlingly true.
On November 23, NASA oversaw a historic rocket launch. The agency was testing its first-ever asteroid defense mission, aiming to redirect a non-threatening asteroid. They called it “the world’s first full-scale planetary defense test, demonstrating one method of asteroid deflection technology.” It's hard not to think of Bruce Willis' 1998 action movie 'Armageddon' when the word asteroid is mentioned... It seems like NASA is finally preparing for an 'Armageddon' scenario, more than 20 years after the movie was released! Department administrator Bill Nelson said that they invited Willis to the launch as a nod to the special connection he has with their new project.
